Jingle Bell Jingle Bell Jingle all the way…. all the way Moral Angels!!! we have come to the last event of the year and that is the christmas celebrations!! well…a supposedly low-key event turned out to be yet but habitually a HIGH KEY event. perhaps moral angels do not know what’s low-key anymore..hahaha….

For start of the day, it is aunty molly and ah yen who has arrived at the home earliest to prepare 算盘子 in the warm kitchen!! Well well, Matron Leong and the nurses joined in too in the rolling of the 算盘子. Cheerios to the ladies!!

Back in the room, sweet voices of singing and melodious guitar were heard, the sweet voice was from teo-toot-toot (Rina, LHQ sweet cousin) and the melodious guitar was from LHQ (Rico’s honey aka ah quan). and handsome ah kiat is there to do some 合音. uncle song was there early taking lunch orders but ‘business was rather poor’.. haha… jinxiong on the other hand is lazing around in the room waiting for people to push him out to do decorations. As usual the naggy jojo got to nag everyone to be on task! haha..

slowly as clock ticked away, desmond strolled in saying ‘today’s my rest day cos you organiser never put my name!’ how dare he say this right..haha… but thankfully he resumed to his duty as audio man almost immediately and i was grateful!!

Alex who is supposed to there earlier than anyone else to help lazy golden bear with decorations came late!! but still he managed to make himself useful to do the decorations with susan and lixia and also stole a few minutes to rehearse a song.

soon uncle yeo was attracted by singing in the dining area and came over to see who this wonderful voice is (is me la..haha..=P)

and ping sing and desment also blissfully arrived together with shuhua with the yummy fruits!!

“here come santa claus,here come santa claus”, as the cute music was played, you could expect to see the first time in history a small-built santa claus!! oops just joking! haha.. LHQ (in his army boots to replace santa boots) came running out with santa rina (teo-toot-toot) and a long time no see elf, jasmine!

as event kicked start by emcees jinxiong and jojo, santa started giving out goody bags to the ah gongs and ah mas, 算盘子 was also served, while old folks were enjoying the food, beautiful voices were heard, love duet by ping sing and desment made us almost sink into their love web and a impromptu canto song performance by desment…simply worth a thunderous clap!

uncle song who also spontaneously sang two english songs were simply marvellious and folks will usually encore for more…mr mok with his usual charm performed a song that mesmerizes…

snow-man designing was game number 1 and we can see how creative our old folks are with their art and craft skills…this goes to show we can introduce more art and craft to them in future..(they are hidden dragons with hidden skills ok…) after the snowman was designed, aunty molly and golden bear paraded down the dining area with their masterpiece. Wow aunty molly was a good campaigner…she managed to garner lots of votes for her group’s art piece…

After the games, the elderly were entertained with unplugged performance by a band with 2 guys and a girl… well well teo-toot-toot sang well man!! cheerios gal!! next time dun practice so much la… good enough le… your powerfulness will make people ganchiong de leh… haha.. then a dreamy performance by alex and jojo on a song…job well done by alex who has the chords in his mind… lastly, mr mok also did a solo unplugged… wow he is forever so ready to sing!!

Then came the high point where angels turns chicky… haha we had a chicken dance performance by the usual and few of the newly came volunteers joined us on the dance floor too… While the angels were busy shaking on the stage, the nurses joined us in the shaking too… and surprisingly some of the old folks were also seen shaking and they looked as if they were ready to abandon their wheelchair to dance as well!!

lastly, we got a picture quizzes organised by LHQ, the old folks surely could have a quick reminisce of the past singapore… each time the pictures were flashed, the elderly waved their hands enthusiastically, waiting for a chance to shout aloud their answers…

soon the time came for us to end off the celebration with christmas carolling lead by our lead singers uncle yeo and uncle song!!! Wow…. their stamina are far greater than anyone of us.. 5 songs in a row!!! 3 cheers to them!!

as dinner was served, ice-cream, mangoes and dragonfruits (prepared by non-babi eater ah xian and shuhua) was also served as add-on to the old folks meal…yum yum…
